Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger bashes NFL's Thursday Night Football

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger bashes NFL's Thursday Night Football”

"Everyone who's played on Thursday night would say the same thing".

Due to them playing on Sunday, the Titans only conducted a walk-through on Monday and so their first injury/practice report is an estimation. In it, he railed against the NFL's hypocrisy, calling the league out for preaching player safety while forcing them to play games on less than four days of rest.

"I'm sure the Titans would say the same thing", he said.

Game day. This is what you live for. It's hard to execute sharp game plans when you're still exhausted.

The Seattle Seahawks came out in force to condemn Thursday night games after Richard Sherman was lost for the season in Week 10.

During the Seahawks-Cardinals game, almost a dozen players went down with some sort of injury. During an interview on Monday with 93.7 The Fan, a CBS Sports Radio station in Pittsburgh, Roethlisberger ripped the idea of Thursday games and called on the National Football League to just get rid of them.

Our Free NFL Pick: The Titans victory last week puts them for their best start since 2008 which will definitely give them some momentum coming into this game. "It's so tough on guys", said Roethlisberger.

Perhaps that 17-point, fourth-quarter rally will spark this offense into life as they head into a favourable-looking second half of the campaign that sees them play five of their remaining seven games at Heinz Field but improvement is required ahead of hosting New England on December 17. "You're beat up, you're banged up". Both teams are going through it, so I'm not just speaking on ours.

"You've got to let your body recover a little bit", Roethlisberger said. However, there wasn't a franchise on the planet that would've been able to stop Tom Brady and his vendetta of winning a Super Bowl trophy the same season in which he was suspended for 4 games for a suspected violation of the NFL's policy. Even a week, you're not still fully recovered Sunday to Sunday. It's tough to turn around physically because it's such a demanding sport, a demanding game. The more injuries that pile up, the more diluted their product gets.

What does he expect from LeBeau's defense on Thursday night?
